Really clean, comfortable, cozy house. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or return.

Mrs C,

We spent a fantastic week at Samphire House. The location is excellent, just far enough away from the harbour that you can easily stroll into Padstow each evening when the crowds of tourists have gone away. There are many beaches within easy reach including an easy walk to Trevone to see the sunset. Car parking at the rear of the property is tricky with a big car, however, by the end of the holiday we were able to park with relative ease. The cottage has everything you need for a great Cornish getaway and we would recommend without hesitation

Mr H,

Our family of 5 loved this cottage. The location was great just a short stroll into town which we did most days. The parking was convenient especially after a day at the beach with bags and wetsuits. The house was clean and well equipped, our children loved it. The bathroom was very nice and the shower was great. We will definitely look to come back here. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Mrs S,

Fantastic place a few minutes from town, with all the conveniences and facilities you would expect, even a hand delivered card from the owners was a nice touch

Mr W,


Padstow is arguably now one of the best-known of Cornwall's holiday destinations - a working harbour still retaining the character of the fishing industry while also managing to reinvent itself as a modern holiday destination. Padstow has so much to offer the discerning holiday maker, with several beaches along the Camel Estuary, where you can also have a go at a range of water sports such as sailing and windsurfing, as well as a variety of boat trips such as fishing excursions, speedboat rides, sea-life safaris and the ever popular Jubilee Queen. You can indulge your passion for food at an excellent selection of restaurants in the town, which is now the base for a number of celebrity chefs including Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth.  If you're looking for more active pursuits, you can cycle the Camel Trail, the route of the old railway line running between Padstow and Bodmin.  If walking is more your thing, there are many walking trails and routes waiting to be discovered, and if you're bringing a dog, there are plenty of dog-friendly places to explore. Gaining popularity in recent years is the Padstow Christmas Festival, now spread over four days, with cookery demonstrations, food and craft market, and entertainment.
